Prepare For Government is taken from The Cardboard Lung ep Prepare For Government
(emp004) released for free download by Earth Monkey Productions
The latest offering by rennaisance underachiever John Hall.
Resident artist at Barrow Island School, Barrow In Furness, John has been a painter most of his life but lately has written and directed several short films in collaboration with colleagues Shaun Blezard (aka clutter) and Steve Wharton.
The Cardboard Lung started when John wrote tracks for the soundtrack to " Fires Were Started", a five minute short featuring three pre-war electric bar fires in Cumbrian Village Halls.
Another of these films "orangehead", (in which a bloke with a giant orange for a head walks into a pub) was nominated for Best Short at the 2005 Salford Commonweath Film Festival
Other Lung / John Hall activity can be heared on the manassas albums manassas live at the cavendish and vague recollections on lost highway and on "Sounds Of The City.Hull and Thereabouts" from freetownway productions of Hessle.
Carboot afficionados might like to look out for "Binbag" / "You Bring Out The Spock In Me" by Grandads Dont Indicate on Mook Records on 7" industrial strength Czech vinyl
This lung is your lung. Jacec Wolcovinski
